Welcome to Show Me Shorts – Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading international short film festival. They are now calling for entries for their fifteenth edition, set to take place at more than 25 cinemas nationwide during 3-25 October 2020.
Each year the programmers curate a selection of the best short films from Aotearoa and around the world, plus some of the top local music videos. The festival prioritises cinematic narrative-style films with strong audience appeal, as well as films that are making their premiere in the festival.
Show Me Shorts is a travelling festival that screens at more than 25 cinema locations. The festival is launched with a glamorous opening and awards night in Auckland. There is a second opening night event in Wellington a week later. They also provide professional development and networking opportunities for aspiring short film makers through the Screenwriting Lab, Short Film Talks, Filmmaker Resources and various masterclasses.
